DEXTER, Maine (WMTW) - Police in Dexter say they have never seen such a large amount of needles and other drug paraphernalia in one place as they did during what started out as a routine traffic stop.

On Tuesday evening, police say they stopped a car and discovered the vehicle littered with uncapped needles, pills, crushed pills, marijuana and other drug items. There was also a four-year-old child in the car.

Police say a bag of candy found next to the child, and within reach, contained quite a bit of marijuana.

The child's mother was arrested on a list of charges. The state took temporary custody of the child before placing it with a family member.

Police say the seized items covered several tables. Drug tests came back positive for heroin, fentanyl and other drugs.

The woman’s name has not been released.
